Leave of Absence & PTO Balances

Companies with a semimonthly, biweekly, or weekly accrual schedule, follow these steps in order to stop workers from accruing PTO during their leave:

  1. From the main dashboard, click on the Time Off app.
  2. Open the Balances tab.
  3. Click on the worker's name.
  4. Select the blue pencil.
  5. Enter 0 in the field under Vacations Days/ Year (or, under Base Accrual).
  6. Click Save.
This will stop PTO from accruing while they are out on leave.

You can follow the same steps to restart accrual once the worker has returned from their leave of absence. 

Companies with annual upfront accrual schedules will not be impacted by placing an employee on leave, as the employee has already accrued hours for the entire year.

Companies with accrual schedules based on time worked (hours earned per hours worked) don't need to make any changes to PTO when an employee goes on leave.  Hours are only earned based on hours being tracked in Time & Attendance.
